It's a super special day for me. As the editorial director at Lakewater Press, I personally acquired Poor Boy Road, and now here I am, about to reveal it's cover. I fell in love with Jake Caldwell from the first time I ever read this book, and I hope you guys will too when it's released next March.
So, enough babbling! Here it is!
I know! Isn't it awesome! All credit goes to E.L. Wicker. She's freaking amazing!
And here's the blurb...
As a mob enforcer, Jake 'The Fixer' Caldwell is in the dark business of breaking kneecaps and snapping bones. But each job sends him one step closer to turning into the man he swore he’d never become - his violent and abusive father. Leaving the mob is easier said than done. When his boss offers a bloody way out, Jake has no choice but to take it, even if it means confronting ghosts of old.
Arriving in his Lake of the Ozarks hometown, Jake has two things on his mind: kill ruthless drug lord Shane Langston and bury his dying father. What he doesn’t expect is to fall in love all over again and team up with his best friend Bear, the Sheriff of Benton County, to take Langston down. Racing through the countryside searching for Langston, the web of murder, meth and kidnapping widens, all pointing toward a past Jake can’t escape and a place he never wanted to return - Poor Boy Road.
